Had a good day yesterday Cut 80 acres - Still have 70 to go in this field - Will be short handed today - so will push us hard to finish it today

Yields are disappointing in this field - one of our better fields - just no rain in Sept. it is what it is .

Missed out on some great pictures yesterday - well last night - full moon - dark -- add in lots of dust - pretty cool site .

The crows are migrating now, so they had probably just stopped for a rest. I grew up (in the left-hand Portland) hearing you can't shoot crows because they're a migratory species, but we always had them year 'round there, so it seemed puzzling to me. However, here, we only see them twice a year, as they're moving north and south. They really freak the poultry out big time, because they come over in very large groups, and sometimes it can take 15 or 20 minutes for a group to pass by, and the chickens and guineas think they're hawks, I guess. They're very careful about "big birds." Couple of our neighbors have small planes they use to go scout their beef herds, and if one of them goes over our place, or even close by, the birds all scream and run to hide under the lilac hedges! LOL!

Our dear, sweet Kiara (the female Pyr we just lost this spring) was hell on anything that looked like a hawk, and she'd jump up and bark at the plane until it flew off. Bless her. I wish Jasper would look up sometimes, but I guess he never learned because that was Kiara's job. She did keep the hawks and eagles away, that's for sure. If I saw one before she did, which wasn't often, I'd yell, "Kiara! HAWK!" and she'd leap to her feet and scan the sky until she spotted it, then take off across the property to see it on its way. There is NOTHING better than a good dog.

Anyway, if you hear "Caw! Caw!" don't look up, because you might get ca-ca in the face. Yes, it happened to me. Ick.

Oh, and by the way, LadyDi, ARE YOU THERE YET?

That's where I got all pissed off yesterday. I got a "friend" request from someone in another State and she wasn't even in my field of work. And then there is the hash tag thing. No! Not going on the hash tag grid!

And, I really don't want Hertz to know I am job hunting. They post jobs there too. I've been told Indeed is the place to go. I'm sure Hertz goes there too!

OMG!

It is so intimidating to find a job these days.

That is what I find so humorous about Dobes. They can't get their feet wet. In my case, Axel and Ktrin would have to be hauled into the tub, legs sprawled, bracing on door jams, but would wallow in any random puddle they could find.

With Axel, I had to shove him into the shower and bathe with him.

Talk about a good workout!

Speaking of good workout!

I took Guz to get her tires rotated. Then, drove back past home to the car wash. I thought a pre-soak and rinse would do the trick. Silly me! Went to the grocery store and got out and was horrified! Shopped for my groceries. Then, took my roast back to the car wash and used the brush this time. Looked pretty good wet. Got home and crap! Still missed a lot of spots.

Oh well, still cleaner than she was before.

She definitely needs a hand job!

(Gasp!)



A car detailer, I am not. Guess I better take that off my resume?

I've noticed an influx of crows lately. They are bigger than my chickens. They are bold, too! They are hanging out in my fenced in yard. I am afraid for Lily. They aren't know for carrying off Rat Terriers are they? I know they scare my chickens.

Speaking of LadyDi, I thought I locked everyone up last night, but when I went out to free everyone this morning, she was still trying to figure out how to get back in the coop. I have no clue where she slept last night. No wonder I named Rock Star after Cuz!

He's not like any other regular farm dog - he was a wild juvenile wolf (in his brain) when we got him, and it took me years to convince him I meant him no harm. He does keep the traveling salesmen off the place, though.

I'm not sure what's wrong with me this morning, but I'm tired and achy all over and just not my normal, chatty self. Plus, I keep missing the keys on the keyboard and having to go back and hit-hit-hit them again. It's very frustrating. Part of it is this hokey laptop keyboard, but some of it is I'm just feeling discombobulated today. The weather has improved, so I'm not stressed about that, but it could be a post-stress crash. I do have those a lot. You should have seen me after Zipper passed away. That one took a couple week to recover from.

Anyway, I'm gonna go have another pot of coffee, I think. I love you guys!
I know why I have to hit-hit-hit the MY keyboard. I knocked a beer over on it. I have to keep hitting the shift-shift-shift key the capitalize. Which may not be a good thing.



My Mr Coffee pot is on the fritz. It's lasted less time than my dollar store coffee maker. Mr Coffee lies to me when I turn it off. It doesn't turn off. The light goes off, but I am left with tar by the time I get home. Have to unplug it. I don't trust it even when I unplug it...

OK, smart farmer people or horticulturist types (you know who you are), I have a question for you.

We had, as I'm sure you know from my moaning, a very hard freeze a couple of days ago (down to 8 degrees--I think it may have even been our first frost for the fall?). The trees were still fully leafed with only a few starting to show a touch of yellow when it hit. Now I'm seeing trees all over town, mature trees which are typical for this climate, with dead looking brown or stale brownish-green leaves and no real leaf fall yet.

Are they likely to have been killed or merely shocked with a little bit of branch tip die back in the spring, or are they going to come back pretty much unscathed (if the rest of our winter is typical)? I know the young or marginal for our area trees are at risk, but how about the older ones?

I live for trees.

I live for trees too, Ma!

According to the news it is climate change.

If you want to be an optimist, they are simple going through "the change".



I think Mother Nature will take care of herself once the people are gone.

Being non-optimistic myself, where are the cows going to graze once we have reaped/raped and pillaged every ounce of green grass?

Sorry to be a Debby Downer. But, That is how I feel when I drive past new subdivisions.

"Oh let's move to the country!" Them damn deer are pests. Let's get rid of them!

How lucky can you get? If you think about it while you are still there--figure out when Nancy will be out or town when you get home again and we'll set up a meet for when you are walking McCoy. I really want to meet him--I've met a couple of other grandsons (one a Jewelia daughter and one sired by one of Toad's sons)--looks like one of the things that he has and throws is a beautiful eye, shape and color.

Beautiful sunny day here STJ--except it's cold (and as luck would have it, it's colder in the house than it is outside)--and for the moment, not even windy.

While it may have saved some stress it added almost 4 hours to the trip

Davy reminded me of the song by Billy Joel - Piano Man

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwVjTlTdIDQ

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Making love to his tonic and gin

He says, "Son can you play me a memory
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet
And I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes."

Sing us a song you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But there's someplace that he'd rather be

He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me."
As a smile ran away from his face
"Well, I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place."

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the Navy
And probably will be for life


Davy from the Navy - But I did not stay in for life!

And for some reason I like the lyrics - When I wore a younger man's clothes and As a smile ran away from his face....maybe the way they are phrased.
Ooooooo--one of my very favorites from pretty much way back. Funny, I didn't realize it was a Billy Joel song--had it by another male singer on an album (and between just plain old age and gabapentin I can't remember who the singer was much less the name of the album). It was another guy who really wrote good lyrics--had a gift for a turn of phrase.

Thanks Modm...

When given a normal fall cycle a plant forms a abscission layer to the parts of the plants it plans to let go for the winter. The academic danger is this layer may not be formed and is a open wound that could allow for some disease penetration. The real danger of early cold spells is the moisture content of the plant and the freezing of that moisture inside the plant causing cells to burst and the eventual death of these plant parts...in general the cold does not cause the death but some secondary issue taking advantage of a weakened state.

Hey Beau,

Oh for the day when it cost you $1.25 US to by a Canadian $1.00.

Eh? That was back in 1960 when I was showing my first Doberman.

I was also doing some minor league smuggling (Canadian Rye) from Canada to the US. Carried it back under the blankets in the crates of the Dobermans--no one wanted to see what was in the crates after the first time they asked and got to see a big adult male Doberman up close and personal.

I can't remember what it cost to pay to get booze from Canada to the US but even if we'd had to do that it would have been a deal--the only Rye you could find in US (Washington State--state liquor stores) at that time was Old Overholt (jovially referred to as Old Overalls--maybe the worst rye ever).

Now that I think about it the only reason I was sneaking it in was because my not yet husband was a Rye drinker but loathed the Old Overholt.

The Canadian Championship was the cheapest championship I ever put on a dog of mine--he finished in four show with four BOB's and four Group 2's at around 10 months.

Mel--us that like the quote (rats--can't think whose quote it is--maybe some famous American jurist?) "You may do as you please as long as you don't do it in the road and frighten the horses"

I wish Jasper would look up sometimes, but I guess he never learned because that was Kiara's job. She did keep the hawks and eagles away, that's for sure. If I saw one before she did, which wasn't often, I'd yell, "Kiara! HAWK!" and she'd leap to her feet and scan the sky until she spotted it, then take off across the property to see it on its way. There is NOTHING better than a good dog.

Anyway, if you hear "Caw! Caw!" don't look up, because you might get ca-ca in the face. Yes, it happened to me. Ick.

Oh, and by the way, LadyDi, ARE YOU THERE YET?

With Axel, I had to shove him into the shower and bathe with him.

Talk about a good workout!

Speaking of good workout!

I took Guz to get her tires rotated. Then, drove back past home to the car wash. I thought a pre-soak and rinse would do the trick. Silly me! Went to the grocery store and got out and was horrified! Shopped for my groceries. Then, took my roast back to the car wash and used the brush this time. Looked pretty good wet. Got home and crap! Still missed a lot of spots.

Oh well, still cleaner than she was before.

She definitely needs a hand job!

(Gasp!)



A car detailer, I am not. Guess I better take that off my resume?

Speaking of LadyDi, I thought I locked everyone up last night, but when I went out to free everyone this morning, she was still trying to figure out how to get back in the coop. I have no clue where she slept last night. No wonder I named Rock Star after Cuz!

Yep I was worried about looking up as the large V of Canadian geese came flying over...But couldn't help it

SP

Crows - I am with SP - I typically don't see that many all at once....when I went outside I thought - hmm is something dead out here

However, here, we only see them twice a year, as they're moving north and south. They really freak the poultry out big time, because they come over in very large groups, and sometimes it can take 15 or 20 minutes for a group to pass by, and the chickens and guineas think they're hawks, I guess. They're very careful about "big birds." Oh, and by the way, LadyDi, ARE YOU THERE YET?
Hiya Lannie,

4 x 4 John and I are the two that live in the left hand Portland and crows are evidently only partially migratory in this part of the world (also true of some other migratory birds). While I'm in a neighborhood that has a big resident bunch of crows and there are fewer in the winter there are always some crows around. I'd rather have them around than the damned squirrels--there is a crows nest in a big ancient cherry in my back yard and while there are eggs or nestlings the crows will very efficiently keep the squirrels away.

One of the bigger hummingbirds is around all winter (more of them during the summer too and a small unidentifiable wren/chickadee sort of thing that is around here all the time.

I always figured it was because generally the weather is mild enough that with very short periods of time (like when it decides to snow and sticks around for three days and panics the drivers) the crows can mostly find food and every other house in the local neighborhoods seems to have a hummingbird feeder under cover on the porch (I have the hummers from the time my fuchsias start blooming early in the spring until it gets too cold for them--they entertain my indoor only cats all summer long.

One of my dogs used to follow airplane shadows on the ground--never occurred to him to look up I guess. It was pretty funny to watch him when he spotted a shadow...

I knew you had sunglasses on! The sun was hard on my eyes and it was just a video for me!

I couldn't tell how much "stalk" there was left after harvesting - but do you do anything with it? Or just plow/furrow it back into the ground for nutrients? Do you have to rotate your crops? Lots of questions for so early in the morning.

Yep it was Dylan - I did not know the song had to look it up Here are the lyrics -

"My Back Pages" was on his 1964 Album...

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I
Proud 'neath heated brow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now.


Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
"Rip down all hate," I screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull, I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now.

Girls' faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now.

A self-ordained professor's tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
"Equality," I spoke their word
As if a wedding vow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now.

In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not I'd become my enemy
In the instant that I preach
My existence led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now.

Bob Dylan - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92cF_KCH7TU
The Byrds (cover in 1967 - good year ) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h80l4XIPJC4


Jim Croce and Maury Muehleisen were awesome!

Steve Winwood sang - Back in the High Life Again - Roll With It - Valeri - While You See A Chance

pretty much shave it off at ground level Mod - Yes - Even with sunglasses the sun makes it hard to drive into . We leave he residue as is - as you said - to leave nutrients there - to help control erosion = no - till . I have another video I took after this one - which shows the dust and sun worse .
